Beck

TENANT FROM HELL

Claims 'Inglourious Basterds' Star

12/26/2013 3:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1226-beck-Til-Schweiger-gettyBeck is in the middle of a war with a very rich, very powerful German ... a German who claims Beck DESTROYED his Malibu rental property ... and now, they're suing the crap out of each other, TMZ has learned.

The German is Til Schweiger -- who besides playing Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz in "Inglourious Basterds," is one of the top filmmakers in Germany (we'd put a clip in the post, but they're all too violent).

Here's what we know ... Til owns a huge mansion in Malibu and was renting it out to Beck for $11,000-per month from 2010 until Feb. 2013.

1226-beck-Til-Schweiger-galleryBoth sides agree the mansion was a HELLHOLE when Beck left, but each man is holding the other responsible for the damage.

Beck says ... when he moved in, the home already had HUGE problems -- including mold, plumbing and electrical issues which caused further damage to everything from the fridge to the washing machine ... and even laptops.

Til says ... Beck had all sorts of unauthorized work done to the home while he lived there, causing "substantial physical damage" that required $40,571.00 in repairs.

Now, Beck's suing Til claiming the German won't return his $11,000 security deposit ... and Til's counter-suing Beck for the damage PLUS unpaid back rent, totaling $56,704.24.

USA vs. Germany ... this could get ugly.

My guess is the Beck claims are overexaggerated. Most dead beat tenants use the mold car. Where's the letters from the start listing the problems? Any lease agreement should have spelled out what the tenant could and couldn't do and probably so in this case.

Yeah right Beck, you were willing to pay over 10 grand a month on a mold-infested, plumbing and electrical nightmare when you moved in?

Beck is lying or incredibly stupid. NOBODY would move into this "mansion" with these kinds of major problems, drop $11K deposit, and STILL pay $11K rent on this mediocre so called mansion for 3 years. Nope - sorry NOBODY is that stupid.
